    I like his tats! The vintage shirt fits him nicely. This reminds me of my childhood. Use to wear these shirts as a kid, and loved them!

    Excellent reetro ’70s mash-up. Very trangressive and witty. I am not sure about the bage, though, it is a bit inconsistent in its contemporaneity. Great attiude.

    I love it, even though it has certain elements that would point in the other direction: purposeless safety pins, old-school polyester, and sans belt. I think what works is that the fit is good, and there is an overall cleanliness to the look based on a lack of accessories. I would remove the canvas bag, an outfit like this would go best with something dark, preferably leather or even vinyl. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    To me this photograph shows there is a difference between having a look and having style.

    This outfit could’ve gone all wrong. But the perfect fitting of the outfit just makes it right. The shirt with the nicely rolled arms together with the suitpants to take the edge of the street look and contrast the tatoos.

    Adore the graphic print … and the combination with the trousers….suits him perfectly !
    He makes me think a bit of the late Heath Ledger …

    this is the kid of boy i would date: sexy and punk rock. the details (the pins, the upside down watch, the way the pants fit him and his tattoos poke out from his sleeves, the beautiful color scheme) let you know he pays attention, but the unusual choices are still strikingly “anti-fashion.” You know he wouldn’t need an hour to get ready to go out, and he’d still look great.

    What are those spots on his trousers?
    I’m okay with the pins. It’s not for the boardroom, but it’s fine for the Lower East Side.
    An inexpensive alternative to jewelry.

    This is a repost, no? I remember commenting on how he rolled his sleeves several weeks ago.

    It’s a few years too soon for a revival of Tyler Durden chic, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt because he looks too young to have rocked it the first time around. The trousers fit reasonably well, which is almost unheard of on these pin-thin hipster boys, but what are they splattered with?

    i’m strangely COMPELLED by this pic (the enlarged version is especially perfect!)… lovelovelove the shirt’s pattern, which combined with the neat trousers, cool watch and tattoos makes his look completely flawless in a rough-scottish-lad-kind-of-way :D i guess i’m a bit head over heels now… :P
    (i follow the blog regularly but this is the 1st pic that has inspired me to say sth…so thanks Sart!)

    I think the trousers and the tattoos mach nicely but I’m rather skeptical to the shirt. I like the idea of having the safety pins on the shirt because it matches his face and hair, and gives him a kinda rock star look. The white bag softens the rock star look and makes it extra special.

    Usually I’m not a hater, but there’s something to be said for good grooming. Vintage, punk chic, scruffy… blah blah blah. But that’s no excuse for looking like you woke up from a stupor.

    I like this guy’s style, but those polyester shirts are so uncomfortable, they don’t breathe and they stick to you when you sweat!

    I have to agree with Anonymous 1:09PM.

    If you’re going to be so deliberate in choosing what to wear and how to wear it, I think you should take a shower and wear clean clothes to pull it off. Otherwise it’s kind of like an F-U to the rest of us.

    I really like that shirt and pants. The tatto looks curious but I like it. A different but nice style.

    This guy is a STORY. The eyes, the shirt, the pins, the water on his pants. Anyone notice the scarring on his forearms?

    Although I think he is capable of doing it, I just can’t help but wonder if this young man pinned those on himself or if he bought the shirt that way. It shows how such a small conventional item such as a safety pin can make a very strong statement when placed out of it’s usual functional context. Agree that the fit is great, slim and long.

    i like this.
    it could have come off as very cheap and tacky, but instead there’s an intrigue to the scruffy retro-ness of it all.

    now, if only he was carrying a better bag…

    The safety pins used as accessories look like a tribute to Vivienne Westwood. At least I do it in that sense when I put on one, just a very small one though.
    Other than that, that look is totally a no-no for me.

    Awwww I am a sucker for men in ponytail (that’s what I think he has)…but not the hrad rock/death metal kinda way, but the grunge/indie kinda way. Seems he pulled it off nicely!

    like his style – there’s a bit of Heath Ledger going on. The bag and silk shirt might look too feminine on some but they look just right on him;
